Ok copied idea Cool but this really needs to happen lol comment and rate for support Very Happy or troll Laughing

Cloaks are awesome but for the afk alts sat in 0.0 systems doing nothing but disrupting 0.0 life is stupid,, make cloaks require fuel of some sort giving specific ships like cov ops etc a bonus to fuel usage (even add a fuel bay so doesnt change how much ammo you can carry etc). now on a pvp side make the fuel carried in said cov ops type ships last a few hours for say a good fleet op or personal op etc, this means that players are actually playing when using a cloak and have to manage there fuel usage thus stopping these afk alts in systems 24/7 ( whats the point in allainces going head to head over space for ther players to be stuck in POS/station coz a nuet is cloaked in system.. yes go out and pvp more but most of them players want to use the space they fought for )

All this idea does is stop that problem from happening - as a pvper and an industrialist i cant see what issues this would cause

AFK cloakers help in adding an element of danger for an industrialist. The industrialist doesn't know whether or when said cloaker will become active, and will therefor either face the danger, or go somewhere else.

Removing this altogether makes it even safer for industrialists to do their thing.

It's tied to the 'remove/change local' discussion, both of which I've addressed in my suggestions:

I'll just say this before the local bandwagon comes by.

Any kind of nerf to the cloaking mechanic is nigh impossible unless something is also done to the way local registers players.
The biggest reason players afk cloak is to throw the defending system off their tail so that they can either implement that ambush they had planned or to finally slip by the blob that was camping the gate he wanted to go throu. (and a selected few do it for the lulz)

While I agree that something should be done to the way the cloaking is done, it can't be done without also considering how to deal with "local".

For now I guess we can only wait and see what ccp will do to 0.0 before making plans on how to deal with cloaking
